Piers Morgan invites Meghan Markle onto new show to ‘settle unfinished business’

Piers Morgan has invited Meghan Markle onto his new Australian breakfast show to "settle unfinished business".

With the controversial TV presenter set to host a new breakfast programme named TalkTV, he has now made a jibe at Meghan Markle – whom he has had a long-running feud with.

While making a subtle dig about their "unfinished business" he also took the opportunity to ask her onto his upcoming programme in a bid to clear things up between the feuding duo.

Speaking on Sky News Austrailia while doing the rounds to promote his new show, he said: "Fundamentally, what I want the show to do is be a platform for free speech and democratic debate.

"And the right for people to come on and have their own opinion without being shamed and cancelled – because that’s the way back for society."

He then added: "If Meghan Markle’s watching – I’m sure she is – if you want to be my first guest, we have a bit of unfinished business. I’m available."

The former GMB anchor also took to Instagram today (Thursday, February 24) to post a snap of himself in front of a huge billboard which promoted his new TV programme.

He wrote alongside it: "My kinda promo. Great to meet all my new Sky News Australia colleagues in Sydney today. Can’t wait to get started on the new global show."

Fans of the opinionated broadcaster were quick to comment on the snap, with one writing: "Not a great fan of his as a person but you cannot deny he is an excellent journalist."

Somebody else then penned: "While Meghan and Harry are struggling to produce one single podcast Piers is hopping from continent to continent. You owe it all to Meghan. Without her I wouldn't have like you."

A third person added: "Amazing!! Buzzing to see you on our screens again!! Good luck Piers! X."

Piers left Good Morning Britain after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took part in a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey last spring.

Remarks were made and then Piers decided to depart from his role at ITV.

Talking to Sophie Raworth about his upcoming show previously, Piers said: "I am launching a new global daily TV show for Rupert Murdoch's news corporation in America, starting in the spring.

"It will air daily in the UK, daily in the US and in Australia daily as well so I will be a tri-continental irritant which is something I have been aspiring to be for quite some time.

"It's going to be opinion, debate, big interviews, so if you've missed me on morning TV, I'm sorry but I'll be back very soon.

"If you haven't missed me, I'm not sorry."
